Breaking Writing Rules 1-5

I am in love with the book The Renegade Writer by Linda Formichelli and Diana Burrell. I have a dog-eared paperback copy and consult it often. Recently an author friend of mine wrote a bunch of posts on Bubblews where she takes a book about writing and breaks it down, inserting her own opinions and personal experiences! Here’s #15 of her series, which will take you to the others: http://www.bubblews.com/news/1504842-roberts-rules-of-writing-lesson-15-wave-good-bye

Here's the blog The Renegade Writer, which holds lots of inspiration for writers!



I decided to grab a bunch of the rules to break from The Renegade Writer and then write my own personal take on them based on personal experience or opinion. Definitely check out this book (link conveniently located above), because there is so much more to it. Here's part of my list (more to come!):

#1 Must Have Degree

#2 Must Have Connections

#3 Must Spend Money to Make Money

#4 Must Have Full Writer's Guidelines

#5 Must Write for Money

Get Your Work Published in Regional Parenting Publications!

Back when I only had three kids and was still hanging on to that dream of being a writer like a dog with a pork chop, I felt lost. But ...

What was I going to write about? How to pick between all the ideas swirling around in my head? Once written, where in the world would I send my stuff?

Well, I finally did get something written and I sent it off to my local regional parenting magazine, Kansas City Parent. The logical thing to do, right? Lots of writers do it (and then get stuck only writing for their local magazine and don't realize there are dozens and dozens more who also want their piece). Once I got my act together I got to see it in the May/June issue of Calgary's child here. After that, it evolved into this and sold more often. And that's just one article. I have about 100 in circulation these days.

But I'm getting ahead of myself. Back to WHERE will I send my stuff besides my local place?

Well, I found this outdated, nowhere-near-complete list called Parenting Publications of America online. I used that as a starting point to find more magazines all over the country (and Canada and England and Australia) and started collecting editor email addresses any way I could. It took a lot of hours of research, and all without an Internet connection at home.

After I entered all the email addresses and information into my email account, I went to town writing and submitting. And I had success!

That's when I decided to write/compile this back in 2009 to help others do the same, and it's now in the 6th edition (don't be fooled by more expensive and 1/4 of the size knock-offs that don't include the markets and want you to spend money on the information THEN spend hours of your time hunting down email addresses like tiny little email deer).


So I wanna know: how many ideas do you have? How many excuses do you make for not having time to write and make money getting published because I will shoot them down one by one like little tiny excuse deer, leaving you with no option but to be successful. With this ebook, you have no more excuses. I help you:

  1. come up with ideas
  2. get your piece written
  3. submit to over 200 regional parenting magazines
  4. get to the next level by providing NATIONAL and online parenting magazine information (FamilyFun, Working Mother, Parents, BabyTalk and more)
The only thing you have to lose is your financial worry ... and that ridiculous fear of success. Sign up for an email subscription and never miss a post!

November's Work-From-Home Income

November weighed in at a scrawny $1,191.63.  Here's why it was a little slow. I kind of shut down for a while and needed a little break to grieve and take care of some other things.

So far this year I've made about $13,000 from my home while homeschooling my brood and going out to play with them almost every afternoon.

In other words, I have a life. I'm only working a few hours a day and if I could work full-time I could easily be pulling down close to $50,000, which I don't think is too shabby. The kids are still in gymnastics at about $200 per month, and Christmas is going to be a breeze this year. Hubs needs new tires? No problem! Need to remodel the kitchen before we move? Well, then I'd better get my butt moving!

Here were April's numbers, and then May's numbers. Then here are June's numbers, and you can see I'm increasing my income every month. July was amazing but not as good as AugustSeptember was $1,651.26. October was a little better than that.

I am in the Stop Whining About Money and Do Something About It Club! Care to join me? Open enrollment is now and there are lots of new members!

Disclaimers: For the record, I have no reason to lie to you about any of the income I’m reporting, and the most underhanded, nasty, smarmy thing I’m going to do is give you my referral links so I can make a whopping dime or so off of each person who signs up to do what I’m doing! The dollar amounts I show are what I actually RECEIVED in my hot little hand or PayPal account, not what I EARNED because things show up at different times and take different amounts of time to come around.

Just like always: I STILL do not count my eggs before they are in my PayPal account. Now, let's get started:

1. Fiverr. $364. The majority of my income is from proofreading when my kids sleep, but I also have gigs for promoting things via my social media outlets. Things slowed way down here. Lots more proofers coming on the scene!

2. Bubblews. $286.17. Just click on the word Bubblews and you can sign up using my referral link. This is basically a blogging site that you can read more about here. Anyone can join.

3. Regional Parenting Magazine articles, new and reprint: $235. That would be thanks to this little gem, and I'm not even really trying or writing anything new.

4. PostLoop. $13.08 doing not much at all. I'm going to send you here because I have a lot of information on this and it needed its own post. Bottom line: probably worth it and potentially $10/hour while you watch TV. *IF YOU SIGN UP UNDER ME USING MY REFERRAL LINK, THANK YOU! PLEASE DO THE 10 POSTS TO GET STARTED; YOU WILL GET POINTS FOR THOSE AND THEN A RATING, THEN YOU CAN CONTINUE ON.

5. Private proofing, formatting, social media jobs: $257.50

6. Ebooks on Amazon: $35.88 is my half after I pay my partner, who designs all my covers and does other misc. wonderful things. I now have 5 ebooks on Amazon with a 6th on the way (Laid-Back Homeschooling), so I am not to be deterred about this ebook business! Here's how to find my offerings! And here's how to find the ebook below for only 99 cents, which leads to another, free one with tons more markets for online and guest posting venues that pay:


Come back to see December's numbers!

*Yes, I pay taxes on every stinking cent!

Get Organized and Find More Time for Writing and #GIVEAWAY!


Okay, just looking at the cover of this book makes me itchy. Not that I am a neat freak by any means. But I do like to be able to FIND things, and you don't have to have 5 kids like me to get very disorganized VERY fast. You can check this label here to see some of my Tackle-it Tuesday projects I've had going on in the past.

As for writing, you should see the stack of JUNK papers on top of my desk and then in my drawers and then in a large pink tub off to the side, hidden from site. It's full of things I want to get to someday, things that will MAKE ME MONEY to write about, but I can't get past my scary stack sitting right next to me. I needed help, and I needed this book.

If I am more organized, I am get more done ... more work-like, money-making things that result in a vacation with my family, moving to the country, fulfilling dreams. Simple as that.

So if the cover makes me itchy, the table of contents makes me feel warm and fuzzy.

Section 1 is Before We Begin Organizing (cool, so you aren't just going to start firing instructions at me)

Section 2 is Let's Get Organized (and is it just me who sees the word LEGO in there?)

Section 3 is Staying Organized which is my biggest challenge ... within a month a table or a space is craptastic once again at my place

Section 4 is Resources

Here's the Amazon listing so you can buy it on Kindle if you prefer, but at least you have take a peek inside at the full table of contents this way! The author has organized the homes of people and I have been to her home and IT IS ORGANIZED and she is a WRITER who has published other books and does so by keeping her space organized!

I am confident that I can get my house in amazing order with just a handful of Sundays (I don't organize a whole lot during the week because I'm working/homeschooling, but on Sundays during the winter I am going to be all over this book, making notes and checking off things as I do them!) Once my house is all good and my mind is off that, I can focus on my WRITING CENTER.

Here's the Rafflecopter below so you can enter to win a copy of this great book, but if you are dying to have this book for yourself or to sneak to someone else, you can order by writing the author herself at shuckchristine at gmail dot com (gotta watch out for those spammers, you know), and she is happy to give you a nice discount on the book! Instead of the original $15 + shipping price, she's going to send it to you for only $11 including shipping. It's a book that will change your life!

P.S. Check out her blog ... you can find her on the right-hand side of this page ... Christine Shuck, Writer at Large.

How Much Do I Make Per Hour as a Writer?

Okay, so here was October's income and sources for little ole me.

That's all well and good and I say I make that income "part-time" ... but what does that mean in my world? Do I make that working 35 hours per week? If I did work 35 hours per week, I'd be making $12 per hour, which is still more than minimum wage. It's still more than a lot of people I know make to do very difficult jobs while their kids are in school or are being cared for by someone else.

So a friend was hoping I did okay hourly and it inspired this blog post! I can't guarantee I'll keep up with it, so if you miss it, just nudge me! I'm very nudge-able and approachable!

And yes, you have writers out there who are making $50-100 per hour and they are laughing at my measly income. God bless 'em! I'm not competing with them. I'm sticking with things I know how to do that will bring income to my family. Also you will find 99% of these writers have grown children or kids at school or daycare and have a full 6 hours at least to have a thought and put it on paper in an intelligent manner!!!!!

Sept. 30-Oct. 6: 22.22 hours = $24.03 per hour

Oct. 7-Oct. 13: 16.08 hours = $13.71 per hour (my grandfather died this week, we were roofing, it was our anniversary [15 years] and we had weekend company and I likely dove into my ebook project which pays nothing immediately)

Oct. 14-Oct. 20: 21.08 hours = $19.83 per hour

Oct. 21-Oct. 27: 16 hours = $18.06 per hour (tons of Halloween and fall activities!)

Oct. 28-Nov. 3: 18 hours = $22.29

There you go! An average of about $20 per hour, which is about $42,000 per year if I worked full-time. Considering I can work in my jammies and don't have any expenses like gas or lunch out, I think that's doing okay for someone who gets to hang with her kids and husband the rest of the day.

Do you keep any logs of time and money? I'd love to hear about your experiences! By the way, here's my ebook that's only 99 cents that tells you the ways I make money and gives more details than I share on the blog. Then it links to another report where you can find a tons of ways to make money doing paid guest blogging and more (things I don't currently have time to pursue but I hope you do)! YOU DO NOT NEED A KINDLE TO BUY THIS BOOK! They have a Cloud reader that enables you to read ebooks on your PC or laptop!

UPDATED: October 2013's Kick-Ass Work-From-Home Income

Let's just get straight to the point: October 2013 weighed in at a whopping $1,774.96 (if I could do that every month, that translates into about $21,000 per year working part-time from home and taking Sundays off ... not bad for a girl who didn't even go to college!). So far this year I've made about 12 grand from my home while homeschooling my brood and going out to play with them almost every afternoon. And did I mention October is one of our busiest months for social outings and homeschooling and life in general?

In other words, I have a life. I'm only working a few hours a day and if I could work full-time I could easily be pulling down close to $50,000, which I don't think is too shabby. The roofing project went over by about $1,000, and I'm able to help pay that off. The kids are still in gymnastics at about $200 per month, and Christmas is going to be a breeze this year. Hubs needs new tires? No problem!

Here were April's numbers, and then May's numbers. Then here are June's numbers, and you can see I'm increasing my income every month. July was amazing but not as good as August! September was $1,651.26.

3. Regional Parenting Magazine articles, new and reprint: $155. That would be thanks to this little gem, and I'm not even really trying or writing anything new.

4. PostLoop. $5.14 doing absolutely nothing. I'm going to send you here because I have a lot of information on this and it needed its own post.

This is a new business venture where we do ebook promotions (free days, reviews, send ebook to review and free sites, write press releases, do formatting and covers and proofreading and more!) and I split profits 50/50 with my partner, so this month we made $132. (updated November 2015 I do not own this business anymore)

FOUR Articles in One Month in Calgary's Child!

I'm so excited and wanted to share with you! This is the SECOND time I have gotten FOUR articles in one month's publication. Back in November/December 2010 this also happened, and it's happening in the November/December 2013 edition of Calgary's Child this year! There's just something about this time of year, I suppose. Should I go for FIVE in the 2014 edition?!


Here are my four article titles:

8 Holiday Traditions for Everyone
10 Terrific Ideas for Fun in the Snow
10 Ways to Bust Indoor Boredom
Things to Think About When Considering Homeschooling

See how you can truly Make Money to Write About Your Kids? And don't be fooled by the knockoff or copycat books ... mine is over 200 pages long for a reason. It includes not only tips and tricks and processes and worksheets, but also MARKETS and PAY information and EMAIL ADDRESSES for tons of magazines, regional and national! If you contact me off Amazon, I'm happy to send you the bonus at-a-glance Excel spreadsheet of all the markets for FREE!

Here's how to get your copy so you can also be making $50 per article! Believe me, it adds up and really helps out at Christmastime and when your furnace breaks down and when you need new brakes and when the kids need braces. And if you just want to treat yourself to something nice, which you deserve, of course!

September's Scintillating Income and Sources 2013

UPDATE: Head here, to March 2014's numbers to see how I've been doing lately!

Ah, September. Remember I told you my income would likely be down in September due to homeschooling starting up? Well, that was true. I can barely fit in 20 hours a week working in the mornings and whenever I can sneak in 15 extra minutes, so keeping in mind that I only work part-time from home while also frolicking with my kids every day most of the day and keep an immaculate house (hahaha!), September weighed in at a whopping $1,651.26 (if I could do that every month, that translates into about $20,000 per year working part-time from home ... not bad for a girl who didn't even go to college!).


Here were April's numbers, and then May's numbers. Then here are June's numbers, and you can see I'm increasing my income every month. July was amazing but not as good as August!

It is once again awesome to be able to make this much money from home while also being able to swim with the kids, take them to parks and other cool places! I'm able to pay for gymnastics every month and our big-ticket purchase for the month for the house is not coming to mind, but I know there was one. Also, I'm able to start saving for Christmas, which I never could do before (credit cards, anyone?!), as well as save for that little vacation I keep talking about taking with the family.

1. Fiverr. $577. The majority of my income is from proofreading when my kids sleep, but I also have gigs for promoting things via my social media outlets. Things kinda tanked here in September.

3. Regional Parenting Magazine articles, new and reprint: $70. That would be thanks to this little gem, and I'm not even really trying.

"The Birth of a Business" by Cory Tsuhako (review)


I'm going to be upfront with you here. I had the pleasure of proofreading this ebook recently and really loved it. I told the author I would love to do a review on my blog because, quite frankly, I think it's a great read about how he started his own business (birthed it!) and saw it through ten years of ups and downs, happiness and sadness, changes and more.

Here's my review I posted on Amazon:

I love what another reviewer said about this book, that the author is approachable. This book is not written by some know-it-all, I-am-the-best type of person. This is written by someone who is humble and tells you honestly how his business went for 10 years.

He doesn't make it seem like a get-rich-quick thing ... rather, you are shown that business is very difficult and there are times you wonder if you will make a dime even when you are working your tail off.

This book is packed with helpful advice for anyone thinking of starting their own business. It discusses family, faith, friends, coworkers, the team you build and finding good people to work with.

This is a terrific resource!

Here's how you can buy this ebook at a very affordable price. And ... insider information, so be cool and keep it on the down-low ... it's FREE Friday through Sunday, so please get it for free and come back and leave a review. Reviews are imperative to sales on Amazon, and I believe in this ebook!

Your Financial Goals: Needs and Wants

I've been posting every month since May about my monthly income. You can check out August's here. I know ya'll love seeing how much I make and where, working only about 20 hours a week. There are writers who make double what I make in the time I work and there are writers who make half. We are all different.

As I get ready to post September's numbers, I wanted to take a moment to ask you about YOUR financial goals. Not your writing goals (like: I want to get published at XYZ magazine; I want to get out of the content mills, etc.), but your financial goals.

Are you writing to feed your kids? Are you writing to save for a Camaro? Are you writing to send your kids to do things they love, like for me it's gymnastics classes. Also we are trying to remodel and need the money for that. My husband's income takes care of our necessities, but my income pays for extras, like the trip to SeaLife Aquarium and to Powell Gardens and for any mini vacations we might be able to take. And unexpecteds like lawn mowers breaking! And Christmas is just around the corner!!!!!!!!!!!!
Our trip to Powell Gardens last week in Kansas City

Do you want to make $100 per week for fun money? Or do you NEED to make $500/week to survive?

I hope some of my ideas help you to reach your goals. There's plenty of work to go around! I'd love to hear from you and support you!

AMAZING August 2013 Income and Sources

August was not too shabby, weighing in at a whopping $2,081.44 (if I could do that every month, that translates into about $25,000 per year working part-time from home).


Here were April's numbers, and then May's numbers. Then here are June's numbers, and you can see I'm increasing my income every month. July was amazing but not as good as August!

It is once again awesome to be able to make this much money from home while also being able to go to the pool with the kids every day! This month we were able to get a lawnmower when ours broke down and are spending quite a bit of money on remodeling our living/dining rooms with hardwood floors and paint so we can maybe move to the country sometime!

I am in the Stop Whining About Money and Do Something About It Club! Care to join me? Open enrollment is now!

Disclaimers: For the record, I have no reason to lie to you about any of the income I’m reporting, and the most underhanded, nasty, smarmy thing I’m going to do is give you my referral links so I can make a whopping dime or so off of each person who signs up to do what I’m doing! The dollar amounts I show are what I actually RECEIVED in my hot little hand or PayPal account, not what I EARNED because things show up at different times and take different amounts of time to come around.

Just like always: I STILL do not count my eggs before they are in my PayPal account. Now, let's get started:

1. Fiverr. I received $1,224 here in August. The majority of my income is from proofreading when my kids sleep, but I also have gigs for promoting things via my social media outlets. I outsourced some jobs this month, and the amount takes that into account  and does not count it as income for me (about $187 outsourced).

2. Bubblews. $303.02. Just click on the word Bubblews and you can sign up using my referral link. This is basically a blogging site that you can read more about here. Anyone can join.

3. Regional Parenting Magazine articles, new and reprint: $205. That would be thanks to this little gem.

4. General blogging for sites not my own. $57

5. PostLoop. $12.94. I'm going to send you here because I have a lot of information on this and it needed its own post. Bottom line: probably worth it and potentially $10/hour while you watch TV. *IF YOU SIGNED UP UNDER ME USING MY REFERRAL LINK, THANK YOU! PLEASE DO THE 10 POSTS TO GET STARTED; YOU WILL GET POINTS FOR THOSE AND THEN A RATING, THEN YOU CAN CONTINUE ON.

6. LikeNation. No income involved but great for boosting your social media. I finally sucked it up and just wrote a post about how this works!

7. Private proofing jobs: $105

8. BlogHer ads income from 3 tweeting campaigns plus one month of ads on my main blog: $159.02

9. Ebooks! $12.20. I'm only on Amazon now with Make Money to Write About Your Kids and The Tater Tot Casserole Cookbook. You do not need a Kindle to buy these! You can also load them onto your smartphone using their new Kindle app!

10. MyLikes.com $3.26. This is a site where you find something you think your social media peeps or Facebook friends might like and then post it. Depending on who clicks, you get a few cents. They pay out weekly. I tried it just for fun and head back there every now and then.

Come back to see September's numbers, which will likely be lower since homeschooling just started yesterday and my time will be limited!

Update on My Tracking Spreadsheet for Time/Money

Last week I posted here about how I need to start keeping track of my income and stop screwing around online so much. Then I posted here about taking a Facebook Fast, or at least turning off the notifications that flood my email inbox.

You won't believe how my little productivity experiment went. It was a real eye-opener!

Against my better judgment I'm going to go ahead and post this picture. It's grainy and small but you will at least get the idea of how I set up my spreadsheet and if you get out a magnifying glass you can read the numbers! I apologize that I don't have graphic design skills.

Basically what this is saying is that I only worked 24.66 hours last week, made $682.17 and averaged $27.66 per hour.

1. This is the most I have made in a week since I started doing this in earnest back in April.

2. I feel like I worked a lot less than usual. Having to track my other made me cognizant of when I was messing around.

3. About 25 hours of working allowed me to have lots of fun with my kids, complete my chores and do somewhat of an overhaul of the "playroom" ... resulting in getting rid of 2 bags of things from the house. Progress!

This week proofreading has died down significantly so I'm focusing more on creating original content and on the house/kids. I don't know if I'll be able to make that much in a week again, but I was surprised that I could. If I worked at that rate of income for 40 hours per week for 52 weeks per year that would be a salary of:

$57,532

Not too shabby!

Keeping Track of Hours and Income ... How Much Am I Screwing Around?

Lately I've wondered if I have ADHD or something. I'll start proofreading a project or writing an article and my mind wanders within minutes and then I'm checking my Bubblews bank balance, then my PayPal balance then dreaming of a vacation and then hopping onto Facebook JUST FOR A SECOND, then 20 minutes later I have gotten NOTHING DONE!

Sound familiar? If not, and you have it all under control, GET OUTTA HERE!

So this week I started a new little spreadsheet. I already have one to keep track of my Fiverr jobs and one for my daily earnings so I can hold myself accountable there (that spreadsheet is not what I go by when I share my monthly income with you here on the blog; earned versus I HATE IT IN MY HANDS = two very different things).

Down the left I have each day of a 7-day week.

Along the top I have different projects: Fiverr, Bubblews, Regional Mags, National Mags, Ebooks, Blogging Sites, Other.

Each day I keep track of time I spend on each project. Doing this ONE DAY woke me up to how much I was NOT working. I felt like I was working all day, but I was checking email, answering tweets and (see top of this post for the other things I do to screw around).

Don't get me wrong: social media and email and all that are things I need to keep up with. But I need to set aside a set time daily for that and log it in OTHER.

The plan is to add up the time I've spent actually working, the money I've earned and then figure out my dollar per hour rate. And then increase that rate over time.

July 2013 Jammin' Monthly Income Report

July was amazing and I made more than in June, with the grand total being $2,001.29.

Here were April's numbers, and then May's numbers. Then here are June's numbers, and you can see I'm increasing my income every month.

I'm really excited to be able to make this much from home while being with my kids and still hitting the pool and having fun with my family! This month we got a new gas convection oven and were able to pay almost double on my husband's truck payment, so we are starting to get somewhere!

I am in the Stop Whining About Money and Do Something About It Club!

Disclaimers: For the record, I have no reason to lie to you about any of the income I’m reporting, and the most underhanded, nasty, smarmy thing I’m going to do is give you my referral links so I can make a whopping dime or so off of each person who signs up to do what I’m doing! The dollar amounts I show are what I actually RECEIVED in my hot little hand or PayPal account, not what I EARNED because things show up at different times and take different amounts of time to come around.

This all means: I STILL do not count my eggs before they are in my PayPal account. Now, let's get started:

1. Fiverr. I received $1,125 here in July. The majority of my income is from proofreading in the wee hours of the morning when my kids sleep, but I also have gigs for selling my ebooks cheap, writing blog posts, selling reprint articles and promoting things via my social media outlets. I outsourced some jobs this month, and the amount takes that into account.

2. Bubblews. $350.24. Just click on the word Bubblews and you can sign up using my referral link. I think I get two shiny dimes to rub together if you do that, but it will change YOUR life!

3. Regional Parenting Magazine articles, new and reprint: $190 (including $100 in pieces I found just by checking for my name on issuu.com)

4. General blogging for sites not my own. $79

5. PostLoop. $7.08. I'm going to send you here because I have a lot of information on this and it needed its own post. Bottom line: probably worth it and potentially $10/hour while you watch TV. *IF YOU SIGNED UP UNDER ME USING MY REFERRAL LINK, THANK YOU! PLEASE DO THE 10 POSTS TO GET STARTED; YOU WILL GET POINTS FOR THOSE AND THEN A RATING, THEN YOU CAN CONTINUE ON. You must have excellent grammar and good conversational skills on this site!

6. LikeNation. I finally sucked it up and just wrote a post about how this works!

7. Babysitting. Yep, I earn money to babysit while I am also working (I work while all the kids sleep most of the time!). $130

8. Private proofing job: $10, but it really amounts to more than that because it was for a friend and I would not take his money, but he has retaliated by having his wife buy me groceries at Trader Joe's twice, so this is more like $50 in income to my family.

9. BlogHer ads income from spring: $20.01

10. Ebooks! $89.96.

Come back to see August's numbers!

*Yes, I pay taxes on every stinking cent!

I signed up at Share-a-Sale to be an affiliate for different programs, like the Little Passports you see on this blog. I'll let you know about that in the future.

My Income and Sources for June 2013 ... Stop Whining; Make Money!

Total income for June 2013 = $1,559.65

UPDATE: Here is March 2014's kick-ass income ... still going strong here! That post leads to all the other months! Keep at it!

Here were April's numbers, and then May's numbers. I'm really excited to be able to make this much from home while also homeschooling my kids. The money helps out so much with unexpected household expenses (root canals, leaky roofs, new brakes, broken car radiator, etc. that most people would have to put on a credit card or that would put them into bankruptcy eventually).

I am in the Stop Whining About Money and Do Something About It Club!


Disclaimers: For the record, I have no reason to lie to you about any of the income I’m reporting, and the most underhanded, nasty, smarmy thing I’m going to do is give you my referral links so I can make a whopping dime or so off of each person who signs up to do what I’m doing! The dollar amounts I show are what I actually RECEIVED in my hot little hand or PayPal account, not what I EARNED because things show up at different times and take different amounts of time to come around.

This all means: I STILL do not count my eggs before they are in my PayPal account. Now, let's get started:

1. Fiverr. I received $599 here in June. The majority of my income is from proofreading in the wee hours of the morning when my kids sleep, but I also have gigs for selling my ebooks cheap, writing blog posts, selling reprint articles and promoting things via my social media outlets. I outsourced some jobs this month, and the amount takes that into account.

2. Tenrr. $45.00. Tenrr rocks because you keep 100% of your earnings UP FRONT. However, it's hard to get clients on this site.

3. Private proofing job. $20.00.

4. Bubblews. $257.64. Just click on the word Bubblews and you can sign up using my referral link. I think I get two shiny dimes to rub together if you do that, but it will change YOUR life!

5. Regional Parenting Magazine articles, new and reprint: $226

6. General blogging for North Texas Kids and other sites. $147

7. PostLoop. $5.09. I'm going to send you here because I have a lot of information on this and it needed its own post. Bottom line: probably worth it and potentially $10/hour while you watch TV. I ended up receiving $5.09 from them very quickly again this month after cashing out, as in the same day, this month, and the amount was only this low because I was too busy working on other things. *IF YOU SIGNED UP UNDER ME USING MY REFERRAL LINK, THANK YOU! PLEASE DO THE 10 POSTS TO GET STARTED; YOU WILL GET POINTS FOR THOSE AND THEN A RATING, THEN YOU CAN CONTINUE ON. You must have excellent grammar and good conversational skills on this site!

8. LikeNation. THIS IS FREE! I have to push them again this month because I've seen my followers increase, which is good for a lot of reasons; namely, the bigger my fan base, the more I can charge for social media stuff like on Fiverr and Sponsored Tweets. You know how you enter giveaways and have to like and follow countless people? Well, if you have your own sites that need a followin’,check this out. You like and follow and get “points” to do it. Then you can post what you want liked or followed and can use those points you earned. So you’re trading favors. Turns out you can make one shiny dollar for every 8,000 points you get. DO NOT DO THIS! If you like/follow/subscribe to just 30 people per day you get an 80-point daily bonus, which you turn into social media followers. If you sign up using my referral link, make sure you trade at least 70 favors ... I get 15 cents AND you get to see some of the benefit of the site.

9. SponsoredTweets. $19.92.

10. Babysitting. Yep, I earn money to babysit while I am also working (I work while all the kids sleep most of the time!). $240

Come back to see July's numbers!

They are waiting for YOUR submission! Deadline is July 31, and some guidelines are below. Good luck! Oh, and if you missed Chicken Soup for the Soul Inspiration for Writers like I did, you can purchase it here at Amazon. This can be my late birthday present from my husband!


Multitasking Mom's Survival Guide 
Moms are the busiest people in the world! They juggle kids, husbands, jobs, housework, paid work, volunteer work, parents, pets, etc. How do they do it? Sometimes they are successful and get everything done. Sometimes... disasters happen! Busy moms - here is your chance to pass along your words of wisdom, your lessons learned, your funny or embarrassing moments. Pretend you're talking to a friend and share your wonderful stories with other busy moms. The deadline for story and poem submissions is July 31, 2013.



Recipe for A Winning Chicken Soup for the Soul Story
A Chicken Soup for the Soul story is an inspirational, true story about ordinary people doing extraordinary things. It is a story that opens the heart and rekindles the spirit. It is a simple, inter-denominational, living art piece that touches the soul of the readers and helps them discover basic principles they can use in their own lives. They are personal and often filled with emotion and drama. They are filled with vivid images created by using the five senses. In some stories, the readers feel that they are actually in the scene with the people.
Chicken Soup for the Soul stories are written in the first person and have a beginning, middle and an ending that often closes with a punch, creating emotion rather than simply talking about it. Chicken Soup for the Soul stories have heart, but also something extra…an element that makes us all feel more hopeful, more connected, more thankful, more passionate and better about life in general. A story that causes tears, laughter, goosebumps or any combination of these. A good story covers the range of human emotions.
The most powerful stories are about people extending themselves, or performing an act of love, service or courage for another person.
Guidelines for a Chicken Soup for the Soul Story
1. Tell an exciting, sad or funny story about something that has happened to you or someone you know. Make sure that you introduce the character(s). Please know that your story should be written in the first person.
2. Tell your story in a way that will make the reader cry, laugh or get goose bumps (the good kind!) Don’t leave anything out — how did you feel?
3. The story should start with action; it should include a problem, issue or situation. It should include dialogue and the characters should express their feelings through the conflict or situation. It should end in a result, such as a lesson learned, a positive change or pay-off.
4. Above all, let it come from your HEART! Your story is important!
What a Chicken Soup for the Soul story IS NOT:
1. A sermon, an essay or eulogy.
2. An "as told to" story written in the third person.
3. A term paper, thesis, letter or journal entry.
4. About politics or controversial issues.
5. A biography or testimonial.
Story Specifications
1. We are no longer able to accept or consider any submissions sent by fax or postal mail. Please know that the only way to submit your stories or poems to us is via our website: www.chickensoup.com. If you have any problems when trying to submit, please contact our webmaster at:webmaster@chickensoupforthesoul.com. Responses usually take several days to receive.
2. Stories and poems must be non-fiction and should be no longer than 1,200 words.
3. No anonymous, author unknown or "as told to" submissions, please.
4. We prefer that you submit your stories only once, but if you believe your story fits in more than one book topic, please indicate which other topics you have submitted it for in the Comments line on the submission form. Submitting the SAME story more than once to the SAME topic causes delays, so please resist the urge to submit your story multiple times to the same topic.

Working From Home During Summer

I'm assuming that if you're reading this you likely have kids who are school-age who are affecting your working environment. Youngers throw a different dynamic into the mix, and I will have special posts just for them coming up (posts about Babies, about Toddlers, about Homeschooling and more).

I'm often asked how I work from home while caring for my own 5 children, as well as having extra kids over. How do I keep track of everyone? Do I hire a sitter?

Check out my article at North Texas Kids on How To Manage the Kids When You Work From Home.



I'd love for you to share your tips in the comments section here or over at North Texas Kids, and share with your Work-at-Home friends!

Getting Through a Large Project

Lately I might find myself with several large proofreading and writing jobs on my to do spreadsheet. The deadlines are looming, and I don't know how I'm going to get them all done, but I know I will. Here are some tips for you who might have a large project you're working on from home.


  1. Take frequent breaks. Instead of looking a 100-page project like I have to do it all RIGHT NOW just because my kids are sleeping or are watching a movie or are out of the house, I take it in bite-size chunks. I might stop after every 10 pages and go to the bathroom, refill my water, make some coffee, check in with my Facebook peeps, send a few tweets to promote some blog posts, do 10 sit-ups, return a phone call or ...
  2. Reward myself with a piece of chocolate! Rewards are important! I'm not talking about a Prada bag here ... something small to give yourself a pat on the back for working from home, which is something many people want to do, but which few possess the discipline to do.
  3. Consider breaking up the job into chunks on your task sheet or Excel spreadsheet or whatever you use to stay organized and keep track of your deadlines. Instead of writing "8 BlogHer Tweets for SlimFast" with a deadline of June 30, I might assign 8 separate tasks, breaking out the income each task will bring, the time each task will take, etc. That way I can cross of each item as I do it and ensure I stay on task and on time. On that 100-page project for proofreading, I might assign 10 different tasks to it to make it seem manageable.
  4. Try to break up and schedule the project so you can still have a life! This is super important to me since I homeschool lightly year-round and want to make sure we hit the pool or do something fun outside of the house almost daily.
What are your work-from-home tips?

How Does a Parent Conduct a Phone Interview?

Here's my latest dilemma:

I need to interview a couple of sources for a magazine piece. The editor prefers I do it over the phone. I've never done this! It's going to be hard to do on phone with kids running around and no husband in town this week. Plus I have no recording equipment and don't want to misquote. Email lets them think about their answer and there's no misquoting.

Here's a great post about pros and cons of email interviews.

I asked the editor if I could do email interviews and she said it's not her preference and it's not the norm but she trusts me to make the call.

PARENTS ... how do you conduct telephone interviews for magazine articles?

Update: I'm reading that g-recorder might be the way to go and I can try it for free. I'm REALLY uncomfortable thinking about using Skype for my interviews while I have kids running around the house. It's a plus that I write for parenting and family magazines, but I should be professional.

Still ... I don't want to have to hire a sitter so I can do an interview! I'm thinking a good kid movie and some sugar treats might do the trick. And threatening them with NO POOL TIME if they interrupt my interview?

My Rockin' Income and Sources for May 2013

Total income for May 2013 = $1,313.94

Here were April's numbers. Quite a change, and all while I homeschool 5 kids and take on June Cleaverdom!

Disclaimers: For the record, I have no reason to lie to you about any of the income I’m reporting, and the most underhanded, nasty, smarmy thing I’m going to do is give you my referral links so I can make a whopping dime or so off of each person who signs up to do what I’m doing! The dollar amounts I show are what I actually RECEIVED in my hot little hand or PayPal account, not what I EARNED because things show up at different times and take different amounts of time to come around.

This all means: I do not count my eggs before they are in my PayPal account. Now, let's get started:

1. Fiverr. I received $763 here in May, only because I didn’t sign up until April 16th. The majority of my income is from proofreading in the wee hours of the morning when my kids sleep, but I also have gigs for selling my ebooks cheap, writing blog posts, selling reprint articles and promoting things via my social media outlets. I've disable the writing gigs and now focus on proofreading and am growing my Error Police Force so we can take on more word crimes as a unit. I received $120 on private proofreading projects.

2. Bubblews. Signed up here on April 26 and received $150.51 by the end of May.  

3. Regional Parenting Magazine print and online articles and reprints: $120. Yeah, still working on the 5th edition of the ebook (see right sidebar for 4th edition) and someday plan to query the nationals but am too busy on Fiverr!

4. BlogHer. Made about 5 more bucks for May, but have not received payouts yet. Added one ad and a TV dealy jobber to my main blog, plus they have me in another $50 tweeting program.

5. AdSense. HOLY FLIPPING CRAP, I got a check from them for $110.40 on May 28. Keep in mind that's for about 2 years of blogging! Still, I will take it and not complain!

6. Tomoson.com. I don’t make any money here, but it’s fun to receive free stuff in the mail and just do a quick review. Then you can either keep, regift or sell what you got!

7. PostLoop. I'm going to send you here because I have a lot of information on this and it needed its own post. Bottom line: probably worth it and potentially $10/hour while you watch TV. I ended up receiving $5.08 from them very quickly after cashing out, as in the same day.

8. LikeNation. I have to push them again this month because I've seen my followers increase, which is good for a lot of reasons; namely, the bigger my fan base, the more I can charge for social media stuff like on Fiverr and Sponsored Tweets (AND I look better to get stuff on Tomoson to review). You know how you enter giveways and have to like and follow countless people? Well, if you have your own sites that need a’followin’,check this out. You like and follow and get “points” to do it. Then you can post what you want liked or followed and can use those points you earned. So you’re trading favors.

9. SponsoredTweets. I've been with them for probably 2 years and rarely get jobs. Earlier this year I got a bunch of tweeting jobs, then they dried up. I played with lowering and increasing my per-tweet rate, but I didn't get any more business. I'm was sitting at $21.92 and there is a $2 fee for cashing out under $50, so I just went ahead and did it on May 28 to see how long it would take to receive it. Well, forget that ... I kept getting error messages. I'll try again.

10. I forgot to mention that I also do MyPoints and have for years. If you want to sign up under me you have to send me your email address ... they are dumb to not have a referral LINK! Anyway, I've earned about 31,000 points there and 2,000 points is about a $10 gift card to all sorts of places (your choice). So I've gotten a lot gift cards. You get points by clicking through on email, doing surveys, surfing the web and BUYING STUFF with COUPONS!
11. I briefly tried writing for a penny a word and did not love it, but I did get paid $30 for doing it.

12. Ebook sales from Payloadz.com were only $14.95 because I am too busy with other stuff to work on the ebook UPDATE. I also sell the ebooks through Fiverr but count those in Fiverr income. This post is holding me accountable to get the flippin' ebook update done!

Come back to see June's numbers!

*Yes, I pay taxes on every stinking cent!

PostLoop Review

Update 1/5/2014: I keep making money here every month with barely any effort. If you put some time into it, you could make some money fast and have some fun and get some ideas/give advice in the process!

I included PostLoop in my April 2013 sources and income as a site for income I wanted to try. (In case you are a financial voyeur, here were August's numbers, which kicked April's butt into oblivion, and I post my income every month.) So I got busy working the PostLoop system and here's what I found out.

Bottom line: probably worth it and potentially $10/hour while you watch TV. This is a nice thing for someone who is really dying to make some money and after you're tired from doing your other work for the day, you can sit around watching a show and comment on forums. You make about 10 cents per forum post you make. Once you get on a roll, it's easy to whip out 5 at a time in one forum, then move on to the next. You'd be surprised at what you have to offer!

Signing up and getting started was a PITA, but I did make $5.08 from chatting in forums like I might normally do if I had time to do that sort of thing for free. If only we got paid to post on Facebook I would be a rich, rich lady.

I cashed out with just over 100 points and my total earned was $5.08. Because my rating was higher than the average rating* I was able to cash out. I received the money THE SAME DAY in my PayPal account. Bubblews takes about a week; Fiverr takes a few weeks to see the income (although once you cash out the income comes the same day).

Of course I'm going to give you my referral link because I get 20% kickback on what you post. It's worth it for you to tell people about this program. I'm not into wasting time, and this could be a time waster as far as getting addicted to commenting in the forums, but if you're making money doing something you would normally do for free, why not?

AND if you refer a bunch of people, you end up making money just from them being in your "downline." It's like Mary Kay! Haha! 

*Ratings annoy me. Anonymous people are rating you ... and I keep getting only 4 stars, which prevents me from getting into the mom forums. As the mom of 5, this is so frustrating.

Here's from their page:

PostLoop has some catches, but it was pretty easy to get to 100 points.

Withdraw - Sell/Cash Out Your Points

Withdrawal Rate

$0.05 per point

REQUIREMENTS TO WITHDRAW:
  • You must have at least 100 points to withdraw.
  • Your User Rating must be better than the average User Rating to withdraw. Your current rating is 4.00 and the current average rating is 3.67.

Book Rec: Around the Writer's Block

If I can ever get caught up on all my Fiverr proofreading/writing jobs I might get a chance to read Around the Writer's Block: Using brain science to solve writer's resistance by Rosanne Bane.

Instead of having to pay the library more fines for keeping the book so long, I'm just going to buy the dang thing! Here's where to get it on Amazon, along with some reviews!

Currently my struggle is procrastination. I mean, I even signed up to do proofreading to avoid querying national magazines, but I got honest with myself and figured out that it's because I am afraid to have a Big Editor Boss in New York City telling me I have to edit a $1.50/word article within HOURS when I have something planned with my kids. Fiverr allows me to set my own schedule, and I suppose I'm afraid to not be my own Big Editor Boss.

What are your writing challenges?

My Income and Sources for April 2013*

Total income for April 2013 = $438.69 (spoiler alert: May is over $1,000; post is coming soon!)

For the record, I have no reason to lie to you about any of the income I’m reporting, and the most underhanded, nasty, smarmy thing I’m going to do is give you my referral links so I can make a whopping dime or so off of each person who signs up to do what I’m doing!

The dollar amounts I show are what I actually RECEIVED in my hot little hand or PayPal account, not what I EARNED because things show up at different times and take different amounts of time to come around.

I do not count my eggs before they are in my PayPal account.

Fiverr. I made $0 here in April, only because I didn’t sign up until April 16th. You’ll freak out when you see May’s numbers. The majority of my income is from proofreading in the wee hours of the morning when my kids sleep but I also have gigs for selling my ebooks cheap, writing blog posts, selling reprint articles and promoting things via my social media outlets. 

Bubblews. Signed up here on April 26 and received $0 by the end of April. May is looking hella good, though. 

Regional Parenting Magazine print and online articles and reprints: $340. Yeah, still working on the 5th edition of the ebook (see right sidebar for 4th edition) and someday plan to query the nationals but am too busy on Fiverr!

BlogHer. Just one sidebar ad here made me $3.30 in January, $5.49 in February plus I got paid for a tweeting program for $50. They have lots of rules to follow, like you can’t have ads from anyone else on your site and can’t even post blogger giveaway opps. I only stay with my abusive boyfriend BlogHer because sometimes he offers me chances to review cool things for $50 or to Tweet a few times about a product for $50 and then he sucks me right back in. I’m pretty sure he’s jealous of Bubblews, though. 

AdSense??? I put questions marks because what I earn is all theoretical here. It shows that I earn an amount but will I ever see it? So it looks like I earned $19.22 in April from several blogs combined, but … 

Tomoson.com. I don’t make any money here, but it’s fun to receive free stuff in the mail and just do a quick review. Then you can either keep, regift or sell what you got! 

Ebook sales from Payloadz.com were $39.90. I also sell the ebooks through Fiverr but count those in Fiverr income. 

Here are some I’m trying out:

PostLoop. Signing up and getting started is a PITA, but I hope to be able to report back some decent income from commenting in Forums. 

LikeNation. You know how you enter giveways and have to like and follow countless people? Well, if you have your own sites that need a’followin’, check this out. You like and follow and get “points” to do it. Then you can post what you want liked or followed and can use those points you earned. So you’re trading favors. 

Come back to see May’s numbers because you will flip your lid! (Hint, as of May 19 I’m already at $605). Great, now all my friends will be hitting me up for a loan. Haha! 

*Yes, I pay taxes on every stinking cent!
